Sunny Studio Stamps • Fall Release • Comic Strip Speech Bubbles Die

22.08.2019

Hello everyone,

since tonday I'm showcasing the Sunny Studio Stamps Comic Strip Speech Bubbles Die, I created another card with the fabulous Super Duper Stamps. This time I went with a masculine color scheme and incorporated the two super hero boys.
I die cut the comic strip frame and the Cityscape Border Die from black cardstock. For the background, I chose the blue dotted paper from the Heroic Halftones 6x6 Paper pack and backed the cityscape die-cut with yellow cardstock.

The images were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I even did some simple shading at all the tiny windows ;-)

I stamped the sentiments in VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and die cut three stars from yellow cardstock. Finally, I popped up the images and speech bubbles with foam tape.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope your day is incredible!

Sunny Studio Stamps • Fall Release • Super Duper

15.08.2019

Hi peeps,

I'm on the Sunny Studio Stamps blog today highlighting the fun Super Duper Stamps. I love these cute super hero images! They go perfectly with the Cityscape Border Die and Heroic Halftones 6x6 Papers. So I really enjoyed creating this comic style card.

I chose the orange dotty burst paper for my background and die cut the cityscape from black cardstock. To enhance the tiny windows, I backed the die-cut with grey cardstock.

Next, I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. The speech bubbles and sentiments were stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Fall Release • Woodsy Autumn

08.08.2019

Hi everyone,

today I'm showcasing the sweet Sunny Studio Stamps Woodsy Autumn Stamps. This set comes with the most adorable woodland critters and I especially love the cute hedgehog!

I found the perfect patterned paper for my card layout in the Colorful Autumn 6x6 Paper pack. The colors and the leafy borders are just beautiful. I die cut three openings using the Window Trio Square Dies and added a piece of green grid paper behind them.

The images were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and adhered everything with foam tape. Next, I white heat embossed the sentiment onto a little banner and finished off the card by adding two die-cut hearts to the left.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Fall Release • Elegant Leaves

01.08.2019

Hello everyone,

I'm sharing a card made with the beautiful Elegant Leaves Stamps. Of course this set can be used for Fall projects but since we're in the middle of a hot summer, I decided to go with non-traditional colors.

I started off with a white A2 card base and randomly stamped the solid images in aqua, peach and light grey as well as the little branches in navy. On top I stamped the outline leaves image in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed them with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder.

Next, I diagonally stamped the word "Grateful" onto white cardstock with navy ink and VersaMark Ink before clear heat embossing it. I cut the panel apart and lastly adhered it with foam tape over my stamped design.

Hello Bluebird • Background Bash • Day 2

25.07.2019

Hi again,

For Day 2 of the Hello Bluebird Background Bash, I'm sharing a fall-themed card where I used the gorgeous Cozy Plaid Background. And don't forget, that the release of 6 new background stamps will go live tomorrow on Friday, July 26th! The older designs will be restocked, too!

This plaid pattern works just perfect for fall projects and I stamped it with Altenew "Autumn Blaze" dye ink onto cream cardstock. I did a simple card layout by combining the plaid with beautiful wine red cardstock and a strip of navy/white patterned paper.

The adorable critters and autumn leaves are from the Fall Buddies set. I colored the squirrel, pumpkin and mouse with Prismacolor pencils. The leaves were watercolored with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out. Finally, I stamped the sentiment in VersaFine Onyx Black on a piece of kraft cardstock which I adhered with foam tape.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great evening!

Sunny Studio Stamps • Fall Release • Frilly Frames

Hi everyone,

I'm back again with a new inspiration card featuring the Frilly Frames Retro Petals Dies from the latest Sunny Studio Stamps Fall Release.

My grey card base is a bit smaller than the regular A2 size. First, I ran the 2-piece die set together through my die cutting machine to create the white retro petal background with a stitched border. Next, I adhered a colorful Distress Oxide ink blended panel behind it.

I stamped this little cutie and some leaves from the Silly Sloths set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images. I die cut the stitched label (Sliding Window Dies) from white cardstock and stamped the sentiment in VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. To finish off my card, I adhered a small purple clay heart (Pink & Purple Heart Confetti).


Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a slothsome day!

Hello Bluebird • Background Bash • Day 1

24.07.2019

Hello everyone,

I have some exciting news for you – Hello Bluebird will be releasing 6 new background stamps on Friday, July 26th! We're doing a fun Background Bash sharing our DT cards using previously released and brand-new backgrounds.

For my baby card, I picked one of my all time favorites which is the Country Gingham Background Stamp.

First, I stamped the gingham pattern in Altenew "Dew Drop" dye ink. I also silver heat embossed the sentiment from the Cheery Greetings set. Although it's not visible on the photo, I used the die-cut overlay technique. This means, I used the coordinating die of this cute giraffe from the More Jungle Littles set and cut it out of the gingham background. I stamped the giraffe using the negative as a guide and colored it with Copics. I layered the gingham panel over the image and adhered it with foam tape.

To finish off this CAS card, I die cut the 'hello' word die (Gallery Frame #1 set) from teal cardstock and adhered it between the giraffe and the embossed sentiment.

Thank you so much for stopping by! See you tomorrow with another sample!

Sunny Studio Stamps • Fall Release • Plane Awesome

18.07.2019

Hello everyone,

have you seen the brand-new Sunny Studio Stamps Fall Release yet? It's full of gorgeous products and I'm excited to share my projects the upcoming weeks.

Today, I'm showcasing the fun Plane Awesome Stamps. This set comes with an airplane, five interchangeable critter pilots, two clouds, a banner and lots of sentiments to mix and match.

I started off with a white A2 card base and die cut an aqua panel with the stitched scalloped die from the Frilly Frames Stripes set. To create a window, I used a circle die. Next, I die cut the Fluffy Clouds Borders from white cardstock and inked the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. I adhered them with a piece of yellow sunburst paper (Spring Sunburst 6x6 Paper) behind the circle window.

I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored them with Copic Markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. The sentiment and stitched swirl were directly stamped onto the scalloped panel using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. Finally, I added two of the Primary Star Confetti clay embellishments next to the sentiment.


Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope to see you again next week!

Sunny Studio Stamps • Wrap Around Gift Box

04.07.2019

Hello everyone,

today I don't have a card for you but a fun little treat box made with the Sunny Studio Stamps Wrap Around Gift Box Dies. I really like that with a bit of measuring and precise cutting, you only need one sheet of 8.5" x 11" cardstock for the box.

I decorated it with the two mini stamp sets Coastal Cuties and Sending Sunshine. I also used the Catch A Wave Dies and some patterned papers from the Summer Splash 6x6 Paper pack to turn it into summer project (although it is actually too hot for chocolate at the moment).

I stamped the sweet girl, the palm tree and the parrot in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copics. To cut out the images, I used the coordinating dies. I also die cut a small gift tag, stamped the sentiment in VersaMark Ink and white heat embossed it.

This was my last project with products from the Summer release. Next week we're already starting with sharing samples using the upcoming Fall release. So stay tuned!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Seasonal Trees

27.06.2019

Hi everyone,

today I'm highlighting the Sunny Studio Stamps Seasonal Trees set which is perfect for scenes all year round. There are trees for every season as well as some fun little accessory images. The possibilities are endless.

I created a scene combining the summer tree, birdhouse, log, apple and birdies with the Home Sweet Gnome Stamps.

I started off with an A2 card base made from light grey cardstock and cut a white mat using the stitched scalloped die from the Frilly Frames Stripes set. Next, I did some blending with Distress Oxide Inks for the sky (Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean) and grass (Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn). To create the grassy borders I used a die from the Comic Strip Everyday set. I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark Ink and white heat embossed it.

I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I also die cut two clouds with the Fluffy Clouds Dies to complete my scene. I adhered all images and popped some of them up with foam tape. A small red heart finished off the card which I truly enjoyed creating.

Hello Bluebird • June Release

26.06.2019

Hi peeps,

it's almost time to shop the Hello Bluebird June Release – the new products will be available at 7:00 pm MST.

This release is jam-packed with adorable critters, fun summer-themed stamps and unique dies. The DT created gorgeous inspiration projects for the four Preview Days. 

Preview Day 1 – Strawberry Jam and Field Mice 

These two stamp sets are designed to work perfectly together! I especially love the strawberry vine frame cut out die and all the little accessories (that tiny knife though)!

I stamped the images, colored them with Copics and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. In the background, I did some ink blending with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. The blanket was die cut from dotty patterned paper. I stamped the sentiment in VersaFine Onyx Black ink in the right bottom corner. For some dimension, I adhered the strawberry vine frame with foam tape.


Preview Day 2 – Seaside Girls 

For this card, I created a little beach scene with one of the cute girls, the seagulls and the grab. I also combined parts of the Ocean Scene Die and the Gallery Frame #4 Die.

I colored the images with Copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies. The sand and wave die-cuts were colored/sponged with Distress Oxide Inks (sand: Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap; waves, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers). For the sky, I used the cloud border from the scene builder die set as a stencil. I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with Liquid Platinum embossing powder. The pinked frame was cut from navy cardstock and adhered with foam tape.


Preview Day 3 – Storybook Friends

How adorable are these storybook-like images?! The background scene is really special and adds to the whimsical look.

Everything is colored with Copics and cut out with the coordinating dies. I really like this beautiful friendship sentiment which I stamped in the middle of the background scene with VersaFine Onyx Black ink.


Preview Day 4 – More Jungle Littles

Oh, how I love this new addition of incredibly cute critters! Of course they go well with the original Jungle Littles set.

First, I created an ink blended background with Distress Oxide Inks (Scattered Straw, Carved Pumpkin, Ripe Persimmon, Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire). I'm really pleased with the result! Next, I die cut the Wild About You Words four times from cream cardstock and stacked the layers on top of each other to create dimension. I colored the images with Copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I hope you enjoyed these cards as much as I did when I was creating them. You can find even more DT samples over on the Hello Bluebird blog.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Happy shopping ;-)

First, I created an A2 card base from white cardstock and adhered a piece of the cloudy sky paper from the Summer Splash 6x6 Paper pack. I stamped the sloths and greenery in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out.

Next, I stamped the sentiments in VersaMark Ink onto strips of black cardstock and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. Finally, I assembled the card and added two red die-cut hearts.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Frilly Frames

13.06.2019

Hello everyone,

today, I'm highlighting the Sunny Studio Stamps Frilly Frames Chevron Dies. I combined this versatile 2-piece die set with the Fabulous Flamingos Stamps.

It's always fun to try new color combos, so I picked some bright and fresh colors for my summer birthday card. I started off with an A2 card base made from white cardstock. I used both dies together and cut the pinked frame with the chevron pattern from blush pink cardstock. Then I used the chevron die and cut it from three other cardstock colors. I repeatedly inlaid the chevrons into the blush pink die-cut.

Next, I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating Fabulous Flamingos Dies to cut them out. The sentiment is included in the Party Pups Stamps set and I stamped it in VersaMark Ink on a thin black cardstock strip and white heat embossed it. To finish off my card, I adhered three matching enamel dots.


Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a lovely day!

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Slice of Summer

06.06.2019

Hi peeps,

I can't wait for summer and a yummy piece of fresh watermelon. Until then I enjoy creating with the Sunny Studio Stamps Slice of Summer set.

First, I made a simple watercolor background using Nuvo Atlantis Burst Shimmer Powder. I combined both dies from the Frilly Frames Stripes Dies set and cut it from white cardstock. I love this diagonal striped design and that you still can see enough of the background underneath.

Next, I stamped the lemon, watermelon and lime using dye inks from several companies (you can find the used ink colors below). To make the watermelon seeds look glossy, I embossed them with clear embossing powder. I used the coordinating dies to cut the fruits out.

I also created a tablecloth using purple gingham paper from the Gingham Pastels 6x6 Paper pack and a white Fancy Frames Square die-cut. For a little dimension, I popped up the fruits with foam tape. Finally, I white heat embossed the sentiment from the Fabulous Flamingos set and adhered some sparkling clear sequins in different sizes.


Dye Inks used
Lemon: Hero Arts Lemon Yellow, MFT Daffodil
Watermelon: Altenew Pink Pearl, Coral Bliss, Heart Beat; 
MFT Limelight, Green Room and SU Shaded Spruce
Lime: MFT Limelight, Altenew Parrot

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Surprise Party

30.05.2019

Hi everyone,

today I have a colorful birthday card for you showcasing the Sunny Studio Stamps Surprise Party 6x6 Paper pack. It's full of fun and bold patterns in happy rainbow colors. I combined these papers with the Party Pups Stamps and one of the Build-A-Tag #2 Dies.
I started off with a white A2 card base and die cut the balloon and sprinkles paper with two sizes of stitched rectangles. For the tag, I chose the blue tone-in-tone paper from one of the backsides.

Next, I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. And know what? The party hat die from this set matches the patterned paper so I cut one out for the dog.

I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark Ink directly onto the tag and white heat embossed it. I pulled a gingham ribbon through the tag hole and tied a small bow using white thread. I adhered the tag with foam tape and added Doodlebug Shape Sprinkles.


Thank you so much for stopping by! Have an awesome day!

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Best Fishes

23.05.2019

Hi peeps,

today I'm back with a fun underwater scene featuring the Sunny Studio Stamps Best Fishes set. Aren't these sea creatures just adorable?!

I started with an A2 card base and adhered the orange starfish patterned paper from the Summer Splash 6x6 Paper pack. Next, I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

For my water background, I applied aqua, blue and turquoise Alcohol Inks to a piece of Yupo paper. I also sprinkled on some droplets of the blending solution to create random bubbles. I matted the panel on a piece of navy cardstock and adhered it at an angle.

I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark Ink on a black cardstock strip and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I cut the right end into a fishtail banner shape using my scissors.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Sweater Vest Dies • Aloha

16.05.2019

Hello again,

today I'm up on the Sunny Studio Stamps blog with a summer project using the Sweater Vest Dies. Of course these dies are perfect for fall and winter or the upcoming Father's Day, but I transformed it into a summer top. Do you know these fun Hawaii shirts with colorful floral prints? I tried to create something similar in stamping a pattern with the beautiful Hawaiian Hibiscus Stamps.

I did a lot of masking and stamping for this floral pattern. First, I cut some masks out of full sticky notes using the coordinating hibiscus flower die. I adhered them to a piece of white cardstock and did some ink blending with Distress Oxide Inks (Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean) over it. It's always amazing when you peel off the masks and the crisp edges are revealed.

Next, I stamped all the layers of the hibiscus flowers (you can find the used ink colors below). I die cut the trimmings from yellow cardstock and gold heat embossed the sentiment.

Altenew Dye Inks used
Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious, Rubellite, Razzleberry, Warm Sunshine

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Hawaiian Hibiscus

09.05.2019

Hi everyone,

spring is in full swing, but today I have a new summer card for you using the beautiful Sunny Studio Stamps Hawaiian Hibiscus Stamps. Do you know how many working hours and effort went into designing these kind of layering stamps? I'm always amazed by the detailed images and it is so much fun to stamp the layers in different colors.

So here is my floral birthday card where I combined the pretty hibiscus flowers with a foiled Botanical Backdrop frame.

I put a piece of Deco Foil Turquoise Transfer Sheet by Therm o Web on cardstock using Ken Oliver's "Stick it" adhesive. Then I ran it through my die cutting machine with the floral frame die.

Next, I stamped the layered flowers and leaves (find ink colors below) and cut them out with the coordinating dies. Originally, I wanted the darkest layer to be a bright pink. First, I tried pigment ink which sits on top of the paper, but it wasn't bright enough. Then I remembered the vibrant pink embossing powder that I had in my stash for years. But as it isn't opaque, it turned out red ;-) I thought it gave a nice contrast to the first three stamped layers though and kept going.

I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Everyday Greetings set in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with turquoise embossing powder. Finally, I adhered the images and also added some matching crystals and enamel dots.


Dye Inks used
Hibiscus flowers: MFT Insulation Pink, Altenew Sunkissed, Orange Cream, Warm Sunshine
Leaves: Altenew Bamboo, Parrot and Olive

DT Stempelgarten Challenge May

05.05.2019

Good morning peeps,

the new theme at the Stempelgarten Challenge is Flowers. I redid a floral card design from about 2 years ago. Most of the times, I struggle with loose and uncontrolled coloring but I remembered how fun it was to do some watercoloring with Distress Oxide Inks over a heat embossed background.


http://stempelgartenchallenge.blogspot.ch/


I white heat embossed the pretty My Favorite Things "Bundles of Blossom Background" on a sheet of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock. First, I pressed the ink pads on my Ranger Non-stick Craft Sheet. Next, I put down a wash of clear water over the heat embossed background. I randomly applied the inks with a wet paint brush.

The Distress Oxide Ink colors I used are Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Milled Lavender, Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet. I love how you could add layer by layer. When everything was completely dry, I cut out the panel with one of the MFT "A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2" dies and adhered it to a card base made from MFT "Grapesicle" cardstock.

For my sentiment, I combined a white heat embossed word strip (MFT "From the Heart" stamps) with a negative die-cut (MFT "Happy Greetings" Die-namics) using a purple left-over Alcohol Ink  piece. Both were adhered with foam tape. To embellish my card, I added two matching enamel dots and a half pearl.

You will have time until May 31st, 2019 to join the Stempelgarten Challenge and this is the prize you could win:



A craft package from the Stempelgarten Online Shop with a value of CHF 20.–.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Fabulous Flamingos

02.05.2019

Hello everyone,

it's my turn again to share another card using products from the latest Sunny Studio Stamps Summer Release. Today I'm featuring the Fabulous Flamingos Stamps and created this love-themed card.
I started off with a lavender card base and cut out one of the new Summer Splash 6x6 Papers with a stitched rectangle die. I also die cut a circle window. For my romantic background, I blended together the Distress Oxide Inks Wilted Violet and Tattered Rose on a piece of Bristol cardstock. I also splattered on some ink with a paint brush.

Next, I stamped the images in VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. I did some watercoloring with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens and cut the images out with the coordinating dies.

I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I adhered the images and popped up the flowers with foam squares. To finish my card, I added two tiny sequin hearts.

Hello Bluebird • Unicorn Tales • Make a Wish

27.04.2019

Hi crafty friends,

the adorable Unicorn Tales set from the latest Hello Bluebird April Release is one of my favorites so I created another card with one of these cuties.

First, I created a watercolor background using some sparkly Nuvo Shimmer Powders. Next, I heat embossed the unicorn and the clouds from the Maverick set with silver embossing powder. I colored the images with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

The Make a Wish Words Dies are perfect to take center stage on your card. I die cut the words right into my watercolor panel and then inlaid the stacked sentiment (two layers of white cardstock with one layer of silver glitter cardstock on top). I embellished the card with Rainbow Diamonds by Little Things from Lucy's Cards.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Catch A Wave Dies

25.04.2019

Hi peeps,

today I'm back on the Sunny Studio Stamps blog with a new summer project featuring the Catch A Wave Dies.

This time I created a circle card and combined the wave die-cuts with the Magical Mermaid Stamps. First, I die cut the waves from several aqua and blue shades of cardstock and layered them on top of each other. I also die cut a stitched frame from navy cardstock.

Next, I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. The sentiment is from the Miss Moo set and I white heat embossed it. To embellish my card I added two beautiful pearls which matches the mermaid's tail perfectly.

Sunny Studio Stamps • Summer Release • Coastal Cuties

18.04.2019

Hi everyone,

the Sunny Studio Stamps Summer Release went live last Friday and I'm delighted to share my first card using some of the new products. Today I'm showcasing the Coastal Cuties Stamps. The two girls included in this set are having so much fun in the sun!

I created a square card and die cut the yellow sunburst paper from the Spring Sunburst 6x6 paper pack for my cheering background. For the water, I pulled out some Alcohol Inks in aqua and blue tones and die cut the Yupo paper with a circle die. Next, I die cut one of the Fancy Frame Circle Dies from white cardstock and adhered it on top of my Alcohol Ink circle.

I stamped the girls as well as the palm tree (from the new Sending Sunshine set), island image (Island Getaway Stamps) and crab (Oceans of Joy Stamps) in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I covered the girl's floating ring with Glossy Accents for some extra shine.

For the sentiment, I combined the gold heat embossed word "Sending" and the Sunshine Word Die which I die cut from golden glitter cardstock. To finish off my summer card, I adhered three aqua jewels to the water.


Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope to see you again next Thursday!

Hello Bluebird • April Release

16.04.2019

Hi crafty friends,

today the amazing and magical Hello Bluebird April Release will be available for purchase (7:00pm MST). You will love all these wonderful products, I'm sure!

The DT created wonderful projects during the Preview days and here are the cards I came up with.


Card 1 – Fairy Garden Stamps and Garden Friends Stamps

I'm so in love with the adorable images from the Fairy Garden and Garden Friends sets. They are beyond cute, designed to be combined and just perfect for scene building. I had a blast creating this 5x7" card.

For the background, I did some blending with Distress Oxide Inks (Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Blueprint Sketch). I sprinkled on some water to lift the color here and there and added shimmery Nuvo "Fairy Wings" Dream Drops which I diluted with water.

I stamped many images from both stamps sets and colored them with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Next, I created a grass border by blending together Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks and used one of the Grassy Knoll Dies.

The sentiment was stamped and white heat embossed right in the middle of the card. It was so much fun to arrange and adhere all these cute images.


Card 2 – Maverick Stamps and Sunshine Scene Die

For my second card I paired the sweet images from the Maverick set with the cloud borders from the Sunshine Scene Die which is one of two clever stand-alone scene building dies.

The stamp set comes with a fun airplane and four interchangeable critter pilots. I colored the images with Copics and used the companion dies. In the background, I did some stenciling with a Florilèges sunburst stencil and yellow Dye Inks. I added Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to the cloud borders using a blending brush.

To frame my scene, I used a die from the Gallery Frame #1 set and cut it from Kraft cardstock. I stamped the sentiment into the cloud using blue ink for a change. I popped up the images with foam tape and finished my card by adding some wood veneer stars.


Card 3 – Unicorn Tales Stamps, Sparkles Script Stamps, After The Rain Scene Die and Magical Sparkle Words Die

Unicorns seem to be still very popular and this new Unicorn Tales set is just the cutest! The After The Rain Scene Die takes all the guesswork out of designing a magical scene.

First, I die cut all the pieces from several colors of cardstocks (frame and rainbow), patterned paper (sky background) and Bristol cardstock (cloud borders). I love how easily this scene came together!

Next, I stamped the images, colored them with Copics and used the companion dies to cut them out. I die cut the word "Sparkle" (Magical Sparkle Words Die) from glitter cardstock and combined it with a gold heat embossed Sparkle Script sentiment. To finish off my card, I embellished it with sparkling clear sequins.


Card 4 – Fly a Kite Stamps

For my final card I created a lovely summer scene with the adorable critters from the Fly a Kite set. I especially love the racoon and little mouse!

I did some soft ink blending with Worn Lipstick, Tattered Rose and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Inks. I also added random ink splatters with a paint brush. The images were colored with Copics and cut out with the coordinating dies.

I kept the design pretty simple and white heat embossed the sentiment at the bottom of the card. Finally, I adhered two tiny white heart die-cuts.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you got inspired and happy shopping ;-)
